empowerment ~ wisdom ~ support ~ courage ~ strength


The early beginnings of With Women Doula Collective started around the kitchen tables of women passionate about birth and advocating for women and birth choices. Today, With Women is an organized group of doulas supporting families throughout pregnancy and birth.

While each doula practices individually, bringing unique experiences and skills to families they work with, together they hold a collective philosophy:

"As doulas we believe that every woman should have support in her choices throughout pregnancy and birth. We believe that birth is a normal and natural event that has lasting impact on a woman's life. All women possess the innate strength and knowledge of giving birth. Collectively we aim to stand with women in their decisions and provide continuous and empowering labour support. We believe there is more than one good way to have a baby and our goal is seeing mothers satisfied in their experience."
